I am about to install a stereo in my boat and I am trying to decide what is the best stereo waterproof housings that will fit on the dash of my '79. I have looked at the POLY-PLANAR Stereo Weather Enclosure on West Marine and it got horrible reviews

http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=10001&classNum=562&subdeptNum=11156&storeNum=3&productId=47238

I also saw a Seaworthy SEAGIM3 weather enclosure while I was looking around.

Does anyone own one of these and do you like it?
Thanks

My boat had the SeaWorthy enclosure when I bought it. It worked fine for a couple of years, then the spring button self destructed & the door wouldn't stay closed.
Recently I installed this universal enclosure (http://www.bartswatersports.com/catalog/Electronics__Stereos/Boat_Stereos/Universal_Marine_Stereo_Housing/index.asp) in hopes that it would be more durable & survive longer...... so far, so good.

overtons has or had, the enclosure that came on the 91-94 boats, I bought one a couple of years ago for my boat and then put the same one on our party barge. It has a bottom center release and whole cover slides up and out of view,spring loaded
